Today, I checked the Instagram Story of Sara Asiya, one of my favourite Instagram personalities. She is the funniest lady I’ve come across in a while, I love her. However, sadly, she constantly is faced with negative feedback and her feeds are no stranger to negative comments and is becoming a hub trolls.

Today, she broke down LIVE on Instagram. It broke me. I know that this stuff happens, but I think seeing the affects first hand really messed me up.

The media is notorious for spreading the message that women are “too big” or “too thin” and what the “perfect” body/face shape is, so the last thing we need is some troll that has nothing better to do with their time than hurt and offend people. There’s a difference between banter and disrespect.

I do not stand for it, and I do not condone it. Listen to what I’ve got to say below…

LED Lashes

Another post, another crazy cosmetics/beauty tech hack that I cannot get my head around… This time, it’s the turn of LED lashes. Lord, lord, lord, lord… No, not the singer who sings about Royals. The ACTUAL Great Lord! 🙏

Disclaimer: Rudolph had a very shiny nose not eyelashes.

I just don’t know why people can’t just decide that sticking electrics on their face is a no-go. Imagine paying a British Gas bill because you want to make your lashes light up. WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL?!

Yes, we all like a good rave once in a while but there are other ways going about it! For starters, buy a light up shirt or a glow stick – don’t attach LED lights to your lash-line! Is this not dangerous? Lights should never be that close to the eye, right?

I’m at a loss. Genuinely. I feel like I’m ripping these ideas to shreds today, and that’s not what I want…

I’m all for a glow up, but not when you’re ruining your lashes and potentially eyesight in the process. I just think it’s unsafe, not to mention silly. Sorry, not sorry.

It’s not that they look bad, ’cause they don’t (to someone who likes that sort of thing)… It’s just, they don’t seem safe to me… LEDs are lights which are similar to lasers. Therefore, you don’t need to be an optician to work out it’s dangerous… Of course, it’s not directly being shined into the eye but even so… Still, I don’t like the idea.

Apparently, these LED lashes were trialed in the Bay Area… I don’t think they’re BAE-y at all!

FYI: I’m all for LED shoes, LED bags, LED jewellery etc. but I do think sticking LEDs so close to your eyes is wrong. Come on, your eyes should be enough to light up the room, you don’t need LED lashes! No?

Check it out below. Enjoy.

Polyvore

The one who doesn’t do ‘fashion’ is blogging about fashion twice in the space of one day That’s what’s happening.

As I hang my head over my toilet like a drunk, hungover or pregnant person, here’s my review on Polyvore.

One of my besties introduced me to this app, and tbh I’m very impressed. As you must know by now, I usually buy clothes around Christmas time – sometimes not at all… I actually still own outfits that I fitted into at the age of 16, no lie.

The way I look at it is – I own a washing machine. So, clothes go inside of that washing machine, as does fabric softener/detergent. Join us here tomorrow for a review of Calgon – ’cause “washing machines live longer with” them. “BANG and the limescale* is gone!” Oops, sorry, wrong ad…

Back to Polyvore, the app for those who lack fashionista/beautista qualities. Basically, what this app says to me is that I’m someone who doesn’t know how to put an outfit/look together, so – rather than wracking my four and a half braincells trying to choose various garments/makeup to match, just use Polyvore. It’s simpler and easier to mix & match, showing you exactly where you should be purchasing clothes/cosmetics from.

I love it. I don’t think colour co-ordination has ever been my weakness – neither has outfit choosing -but I think it’s good to know the latest fashion trends, even if I’m going to go against them… It’s got to be said that I love the smart-casual options I’m seeing on there, unlike seeing a bank balance of £0.20p. 😆

There you go, I love Polyvore, a lot vore than I thought I would… Poly, Poly, Poly! Vore, Vore, VORE! When life gives you Polies ask for VORE.
